Vacuum roller will not spin. Reset button does not workl
My Vacuum is a Model 116.35922500, I just bought a few monthes ago. Just discovered the the Roller/Agitator will not rotate when the system is turned on. Ilve tried reseting the button on the top of the body, but no change.
Is this a common thing for this system and is this under warranty?
Re: Vacuum roller will not spin. Reset button does not...
The warranty should cover you for a year unless something you inadvertently sucked up caused a jam, whihc you may be able to determine or fix yourself. See if the agitator is easy to turn - if not, something is probably jamming it; if it turns in one direction, but not the other, something may be wrapped around it. If it turns easily, it's possible the motor either died early due to a defect or a broken wire.

it may be that started leaking inside him so his security system blocked functions .in that case a lamp would be blinking on his front panel.
also,security system reacts on bad connect hose with liquid bawl (it may fell of).
if this doesen`t help try to leave him for few more days on a dry ,worm place and them star him again. if still doesent work then he needs a repair service.
these are not only solutions.there is always several solutions just you have to give more informations about malfunction .
hope i helped,good luck!
I just had the same problem. The roller will not turn if the unit is overheated. I discovered that my bag was too full. I changed the bag then the roller started turning again. I don't know if this is true cause and effect, but it couldn't hurt to try.
There is also a circuit protector which trips if something gets caught in the roller, so that might be the problem. There is a very small red button on the right side at the bottom of the vacuum (IT'S VERY TINY), and you just push that in and it will reset the circuit.
brush roller berings may be faulty making the brush stick and motor shaft spins against belt causing melting. remove brush roller, clean out end berings and see if ends spin freely or if they stick. if they stick, you might need to replace brush roller.
You probably have a broken belt, or the belt came off. The Self PropelWindtunnel has an issue with the pulley that tightens the V-belt in place getting stuck and needs to be taken apart and released, but most likely its just the belt. They should be replaced every 6 months or so, and the part number is usually on the serial tag of the machine.

I go through at least two a month. What is wrong with it? I keep the roller clean each time I vacuum. Hello, I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Some Kirby vacuum in the brushroll have bushings and some have bearings and the bushing bind up and do not spin properly and I suggest to replace your brushroll with a genuine Kirby belts and brushroll of which would work the best for you performance wise. A suggested belt change depending on carpet can be every 3 to 4 months or 4 to 6 months and the brushroll when needed, some carpets are ******* the belts and they do require change more frequently. The rest should be fine.
